Sebastian, Lord Vaughn stood beside a rusting suit of armor, a dusty glass of claret in hand, wondering for the tenth time what evildemon had posessed him to accept an invitation to the house party Sibley Court.

Title: The Seduction of the Crimson Rose
Author: LaurenWillig

This is the fourth installment in the Pink Carnation series.  Judging from the first sentence, this one is going to be much the same as the previous three, which means it will be an entertaining, period mystery, with a good deal of misunderstandings and romance thrown in for fun.  And it is just what I need after the book I just finished this morning, Everything Beautiful Began After.  It seems I am, without planning it, alternating between the beautiful and heart-wrenching (The Invisible Bridge, Everything Beautiful Began After) and the mysteries/romance (The Deception of the Emerald Ring, and The Secret of the Crimson Rose), which is working out perfectly since the former 2 are beautiful, but I'm somewhat drained emotionally!

  1. That beginning made me chuckle. I've seen this series around the blogosphere and that beginning makes me think I would like it.

    Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings!
